Earlier this week, we hopped on the F Train to Brooklyn Heights to celebrate the Historic District Council’s Grassroots Preservation Awards at the newly restored Grace Church. The Lo-Down was honored to receive the organization’s “Friend From the Media Award” for our coverage of preservation issues on the Lower East Side. Special thanks to Richard Moses, president of the Lower East Side Preservation Initiative, for his generous remarks during the event. We also want to thank the Friends of the Lower East Side for nominating us this year.
Other honorees included Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, Michael Perlman from the Rego-Forest Preservation Council, the 730 Riverside Drive Tenants Association, the First Avenue Estate Coalition and the Multi-Board Task Force. You can read about all of the recipients here.
